The 2019 “Orem’s Got Talent!” Competition will be taking place Friday, June 14th at the Orem City Center Stage. It will be the headlining event of Orem City’s Summerfest.

Orem is currently celebrating 100 years and so this event will be a significant opportunity for students to share their talents with the City and take part in the centennial celebration!

Students must submit an application (their audition) which includes a video of their talent (no longer than three minutes) by June 7th. They will be notified on June 8th if they are selected to participate.

“MVHS Youth Cheer is starting back up for grades 2nd through 9th grade in the Fall 2019.  This is a low cost way to be exposed to cheer and get training towards making it onto older teams in the future.  The Youth Cheer program attends the Orem Summerfest Parade, practices through the summer and cheers for youth football teams in the Fall.  All girls that register will have a spot on the team and the coach has over 15 years of experience and is great with the youth. Information can be found on the facebook page “MVHS Youth Cheer”.

Dear Parents,

Congratulations to our students and staff on another successful school year! We want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with your students and the progress they have made in the last eight months. In our school, we focus on the well-being of the whole child. This includes what they learn academically, as well as their social and emotional safety. Through our partnership with the United Way and the “EveryDay Strong” Campaign, we know that students need to feel SAFE (physically and emotionally), CONNECTED and CONFIDENT. We all need to work together in achieving this goal.

Considering we will not be in school for over two months, we want to give you some helpful tips and useful suggestions for the summer.

 The following link will share  “Healthy Habits for Summer”.

In the absence of school staff and service providers, here is a link listing some Community Resources that are available to you if needed.

 There may be times when, as a parent or guardian, you are unsure if your child is showing signs that should concern you. The following link can help:   “Know the Five Signs that Might Indicate Someone is in Emotional Pain”

 This information is also available on our school website. We hope you have an enjoyable and safe summer. We are looking forward to seeing both students and parents again in August.

Tomorrow is Field Day.  Don’t forget that it will be a PM common day.  All students in grades 1st – 6th will come at 9:15am and leave at 3:30pm. Kindergarten classes will be a normal schedule.

Please be sure to check the lost and found before the last day of school, May 30, 2019.  All of the items left in the lost and found after the last day of school will be donated to a local charity who helps refugees.

This week (in between rain storms) we will be planting our OES Garden.  This summer we will have a summer garden club. The club will meet on Tuesday mornings at 8:00am to 9:30am.  We will attend to the weeds, plants and other gardening responsibilities. If your child/children are interested please let Mrs. Jensen or Mrs. Park know via email.

We are still looking for a design for the Garden Banner.  If your child is interested in designing one, please have them submit their design on an 8 ½ x 11 piece of paper to the office.

As you all know school attendance is very important.  We would like to congratulate the following students for having PERFECT, PERFECT Attendance.  This means they had no absences, tardies or check-outs. They were here 100% of the time.

These students received a 100% Attendance award, a 100% Attendance pin and lunch with the principal.  Congratulations! We hope to have more students next year!

The year is coming to an end, don’t forget that tomorrow is the last day of Kindergarten.  We only have 6 more wake up days before summer vacation!!!

Principal’s Message – May 15th

By Principal's Message

This is a quiet week, but we would like to remind everyone about a few things.  First off, if your family will not be attending Orem Elementary next year, please let the office know as soon as possible.

Report cards will not be printed out at school.  If you need a hard copy for any reason (such as Krispy Kreme rewards or any other rewards), they will need to be printed from home.  Alpine School District is doing what they can to go green.

The days are getting warmer, but we still have a dress code to follow at school.  Please save the cute summer clothes that are tank tops and short shorts for home.

Some great additions have come to our playground.  You may have noticed the Gaga Pit. This popular game is thanks to Mrs. Jensen who wrote a grant to purchase part of the pit and Lowes who donated the lumber to make this possible for our students.  The project was constructed by Christian Romero.  The grant (Fuel up to Play 60) also gave us money for our new OES garden addition.

We will planting our OES garden soon and we are looking for students who would like to help out during the summer months attending to our garden.  Please let Mrs. Jensen or Mrs. Park know if you are interested.

Right now we are looking for any interested young artist to submit a drawing that we could put on a banner on the wall above our garden spot.  If your child is interested, please have them submit a designed drawing on an 8X10 sheet of paper and turn it into the office before the end of the school year.

Remember that next week, May 22, 2019 is our field day.  It is a PM common day. All students in grades 1st – 6th will come at 9:15am and leave at 3:30pm. Kindergarten classes will be a normal schedule. It is also the last day of school for Kindergarten.
